3 Killed in Route 11 Crash
Couple Die in Flaming Car
A Malone husband and wife and a North Bangor man were killed at 10:22 last night in a fiery, two car collision on Rt. 11 at the Creighton Road intersection in the town of Malone.
Trapped in the wreckage of their automobile which was demolished by flames were Donald Day, 53, and his wife Lorraine T. Day, 46, of 232 W. Main St.
The third accident victim was Herbert J. Recore, 28, of North Bangor, a passanger in the vehicle which State Police said rammed into the rear of the Day car.
The driver of the car in which Recore was riding was identified by State Police as Dick Rockhill, 24, of Southbridge, Mass. He suffered facial injuries and severe bleeding, police reported, and was charged with driving while intoxicated.
Also injured were two other passengers in the Rockhill car, Donald A. Rockhill, 18, of Whippleville, and John A. Peryea, 27, of South Pearl St. Police said both suffered contusions and abrasions about the legs.
Traffic between the Creighton Road and Pleasant St. in the village of Malone was completely halted while Malone Callfiremen and Malone Rescue Company personnel together with State Police and civilian volunteers living in the area of the accident removed the bodies of the three persons who died and transported the injured to the Alice Hyde Hospital.
Preliminary investigation by police indicated that Day had turned off the Creighton Raod and was heading in an easterly direction towards his home just a short distance away.
He had barely completed the turn, police said their investigation revealed, when the car driven by Rockhill, also proceeding east towards the village, slammed into the rear of Day's car and it apparently burst into flames, trapping both Day and his wife inside.
Day's car came to rest in the westbound land heading towards. Malone. The other vehicle went off the south side of Rt. 11 and crashed into the guard rails, coming to rest on the south shoulder, also heading towards Malone.
Autopsies were scheduled to be performed on Mr. and Mrs. Day and Recore at the Alice Hyde Hospital this morning.
The triple fatality brings Franklin County's highway death toll for 1976 to 16, three more than were killed in all of 1975.
Herbert Recore's CB Name was "Candyman".
Services are Tuesday at 11 a.m. at the Drown funeral home chapel.
